PETITION: SAY NO TO NEW PROVINCIAL SURTAX ON PROPERTY
WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, strongly oppose the new Provincial Surtax on property (School Tax) as it is completely unfair, arbitrary and counterproductive.
WE DEMAND THAT YOU REPEAL THIS POORLY CONCEIVED, UNFAIR, ARBITRARY AND COUNTERPRODUCTIVE TAX IMMEDIATELY.
The tax is a shameful tax grab to extract money from a vulnerable minority, a poorly selected group of homeowners, on the pretext that they are somehow more fortunate than others, but with total disregard to their incomes, financial circumstances or ability to pay.
The announced tax rates amount to thousands and tens of thousands of dollars per year per household in cash obligations imposed by surprise on an unsuspecting public. Many of those victimized by it are seniors with no prospect of earning income and their savings will be eroded. Many other victims of the tax will be financially burdened beyond their means and will be unable to service their mortgages. Many will be forced to leave their homes and neighbourhoods.
This tax does nothing to improve housing supply and nothing to improve affordability. It is likely to make home ownership and renting less affordable. Only developers, the wealthy and foreigners will be able to afford to own.
The tax will cause entrepreneurs, high value employees and business owners, to leave the Province for jurisdictions where they can live with housing taxes that are less oppressive.
REPEAL THIS TAX!
